Vacation, Day 6

We drove north to Mt. Hood National Forest. We drove by multiple campgrounds, most of them were closed for the winter season. We found a spot, a little bit off the road, but deep within the trees right along the Hood River. The mountain air was cool and crisp, especially right by the water, so we were very excited.
We set up camp and hung around the river most of the morning. It was still cool into the afternoon, so we were confidant that we could leave Daisy behind with no worries that she would get too hot. We could see a pull off with a few cars about 1/4 mile after the turn off to our camp, so we had a pretty good idea that there may be some hiking around. Daisy was happy to stay and sleep the day away.
We walked along the river about 1/4 of a mile, and sure enough, we found a trail head. Waterfalls 2 miles ahead; and we were off!
Finally, some fall colors!

The only thing missing in this picture is Daisy, but I am sure she was sleeping anyway :)
